How many of you have ever felt that way? Man - the amount of times I find myself standing in the living room with no idea what the plan was. So, I go back to what I was doing - usually knitting. And then, I’ve got it! Right back to the living room, and then no idea again! Hopefully by the time I’m on the pretty pink edge path - I’ll know what on earth I was doing! We have kits for this gorgeous shawl here!
